Hello all, I am looking for the radar detector to best suit my needs and it seems that giving as much info as i can to those of you versed in the radar detector world would be the best idea... at least better than my previous poll (although it did give me the answer to the question V1 vs 9500i) (the V1 definitely took that one) However i am still not convinced i should buy the V1.... So....
I live in Dallas, TX most of my driving is around the suburbs and then the occasional road trip to Austin and back. Mostly major streets, highway, and residential areas (that seems like a "duh!").
I drive a Mazda RX8 (don't care what anyone says, i love it).
I have purchased Veil and the Laser Shield however SUCK at applying Veil (i have the antithesis of "surgeon's hands")... I am however, determined to learn no matter how many re-tires it takes and cans of Veil i must purchase.
I speed... a lot... have 3 speeding tickets of 30+ to prove it and several others for lesser violations, yet i am just now getting around to purchasing a RD (I know, I'm an idiot. Sue me).
So based on these parameters what laser detector ($500 or less) is the best way to go???? I am looking for PROTECTION first, bells and whistles are just a bonus i don't need it to wipe my a$$ for me, i need it to detect leos trying to give me a ticket! (although if the a$$ wiping thing were an option... never mind).
Thanks for your input!
